New cushion designs - Whitehall guard - Butterfly

 HI Crafty folks, well this is annoying. I want to show you my new cushion designs and none of them have uploaded in the correct way. So once again, please bend your head to the right and take a look.

This is a smaller version of my big butterfly cushion. Ive had alot of nice comments about it so thought it may be a good idea to make it in a smaller version so there are price options.

 Here is another butterfly cushion, very similar to my design on my pocket mirror pretty and practical mirror

My new designs include an idea I made with males in mind as I feel all my work is a bit girly. I have used an old photo I have from the 50's of a guard at Whitehall on his horse. Ive made it look like its framed in a photo album mixed with floating handwriting of the info on the back of the photo. 
As you can see these are just cut out pieces at the mo, I havnt actually made any of them yet, but they will be available as 12x12" cushions in the next couple of weeks. I also have another design of a flower and lace, il add pics when they are all complete. Until then my crafty chums, toodle pip.

Scrooge or Bah Humbug! Christmas cards

If you know someone that hates may find something of interest here

My first Christmas craft fair

Hi folks, Ive been to my first Christmas craft fair of the year. 1 more booked, but I may sell at another one too, I havnt decided yet.
I took my prints, stockings, dioramas, mirrors, scented decorations, pouches cards and cushions.
Here are a few links for you, Prints  Cards & Christmas items  Pocket mirrors  Cushions 

Out of all things my most popular items were my glass Christmas tree decorations(in the frame in the above photo)Hard to see from the pic but they have glitter on them. I think I was in a sunny part of the venue and they must have sparkled at people.

My cushions had some nice comments too.
So, off to solder some more Christmas tree decs, and make more labels. I made note of things I could improve on while I was there. eg my cushions were priced but the prices were on the back so nobody could see, silly me.
Only about 6 weeks til Christmas. Happy shopping.

What Ive been up to.

Hi folks, just thought I'd let you know what Ive been up to. I have a couple of Christmas fairs soon so most items are Christmas themed.
 First of all I have to say sorry for the awful pics and I have no idea why some of these pics are the wrong way round, please adjust either your head or your screen so they can be seen properly.
Ive been making make up type bags. Im hoping to have my own cotton printed nearer Christmas to make make up bags and notebook covers, so please visit again .
Here is a work in progress shot(tilt head to the right, now) Wooden hangy stars, Stars completed these are in progress, but click on the link to see a set ready to purchase.
The butterfly and angel thingys are images between 2 bits of glass ready to be soldered, Il then put them in a mini easel. They are double sided so 1 side is most of the year(bird or butterfly theme), the other with a Christmas theme.
Also Ive been making Xmas cards with recipes inside them, for things like gingerbread men and stuffing.

                                                        This is a stand ive made from an old frame, ideal for my glass xmas decs. Il decorate it more and neaten it up.

Ive been sewing again. Im making little pouches for my pocket mirrors 5 mirror designs to choose from My mum has this pouch...and a mirror.
Here are some hangy decorations and Ive made 3 designs for stockings.

Pocket mirrors stocking filler bird, vintage, angel, fairy, bee,

I love practical and pretty things so my mind turned to the idea of pocket mirrors, little gems of prettiness and also you can  subtley see if your make up has slid down your face on a night out.

So here are 5 designs for you. As you know I love the angel and fairy image, I tend to put that on everything. the other designs are vintagey(it has a hint of Downton about it) , birdy, butterfly-e and bee-ey inspired .

These are perfect gifts all year round but ideal as stocking fillers.
Please note each listing is for 1 of the mirrors, let me know if you'd like more than one.  Im looking for the man in the mirror
